      https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ the standard rate is £21/night, this is for 2.adults & 4 children 1 car, 1 tent/caravan/motorhome, the current rate @Kelham is £25/night so you are already getting a discount and fully paid members will receive a further discount on booking up to 10 days before the event, after this the same £21/night will apply, there are some extras that will be collected at the gate £5/night for additional adults, £5/night for additional cars & £2/night for dogs
      Please do not try and book direct with Kelham as you will be charged the full £25/night and due to our PLI insurance will not be permitted to camp with the main show area, you will be in the general camping site..
      This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night till Sunday night, but on those days there will be nothing planned in the way of entertainment and anyone staying on those nights might be asked to assist in the putting up/dismantling of the club marquee.
      This year due to so many people "forgetting their passes" we will not be posting the passes out, they will be on the gate collection

    • As from today 1st Jan 2018 we will be updating the membership packs, unfortunately this means there will be a delay in the posting out of the new packs until all the new items have been received, hopefully all the new items should be with me by the middle of this month and I will then work as quick as possible to catch up and resume the normal weekly postings.

      Rear suspension time, I don't know what it is but I just love the look of these shocks. I think it might be the fact they are so subtle. 20180418_143137 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   All fitted...but nowhere near sticking the wheels back on yet. 20180418_213628 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   Now a chance to kill two birds with one stone. A previous owner had welded this sump up for a reason I'm yet to figure out. If it was to fix an oil leak it didn't work as it leaked like a sieve. But also if I'm fitting a subframe then this sump is too deep and it will foul. So a mk2/3 sump conversion is the fix for both of these issues. 20180419_124633 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   Old sump off, notice the deep skirt on the oil pump pickup. This is the mean reason the sump is deeper on these. 20180419_131309 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   Also the difference in length between a 6n dipstick and a mk3 dipstick. 20180419_132834 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   Bit of modification required to attach the top of the mk3 dipstick tube to the head, so I cut the bracket off the 6n tube and lined it up again the mk3 tube. 20180419_134142]   Then a couple tacks with the welder and all is good. This isn't exactly going to be seen and its not going to see any forces so didn't see the point in making it tidy. 20180419_171601 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   Then it was time to find a mk3 oil pickup...I did not steal this from a G40 lump I have laying around...honest. IMG-20180419-WA0023 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   That's the G40...ummm I mean mk3 pickup fitted. 20180419_173855 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   And the mk3 sump fitted, just waiting on a gasket arriving in the post and I'll get it fitted up properly.  20180419_174407 by Steven Thomson, on Flickr   I do love how VW used the same basic short block for the AFH so modifications like this are just a straight forward bolt on.

      Welcome to the site Marc!
    • kazz900
      what if you take the air filter out and fit a cone filter intake to the original air intake coming out of the right bottom side of the manifold cover. Im not sure how much clearance you would have though. 
    • MonsterL35YFP
      Yeah it's strange iv taken it on a long drive and doesn't seem to go past that point so I can't really see it coming off, I'm going to adjust the aux belt tension, I think it's abit over tight but I can't really see that being the problem, it's more of a irritat more then anything. So I'm hoping someone can give me some insight on what's causing it. Cheers for your help tho mate
